New “Thor” Sequel Photos, Story Details

USA Today has done a new feature piece on the upcoming sequel “Thor: The Dark World”. The piece includes two new stills (see below), along with the first plot details.

While Thor did return to Earth in “The Avengers,” he didn’t call Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and so he has to make up for that faux pas.

Hemsworth says: “Thor still has lot of explaining to do, and a lot of making up. Even demigods end up in the doghouse, mate. So none of us is safe.”

With Jane’s life in danger, Thor is forced to bring her from Earth to Asgard for safekeeping in the upcoming sequel. This means she is the ‘fish out of water’ this time.

A big reason that frequent “Game of Thrones” director Alan Taylor was brought onboard for the sequel was to offer an in-depth exploration of Asgard.

Hemsworth says: “We were worried about coming across as hokey or whatever. If there is anyone who can pull off a fantastical world like Asgard with a great amount of integrity, it is Alan Taylor, as we’ve seen in Game of Thrones.”

Marvel’s Kevin Feige adds: “It’s superhero action, but it’s the familiar territory of a love triangle where the parents think your girlfriend is wrong for you. That’s how the best of these movies work.”

Not to mention sibling rivalry which comes back into play. Hemsworth says: “Needing Loki’s help turns everything on its head, and it allows us to explore the underlying complexities of their relationship. It really ends up being a kind of chess match.”
